Hugh Grant has now become a staple part of the British romcom movie – but it seems it almost wasn’t to be!
The actor almost lost out on his breakout role as Charles in Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) as he was “too handsome” for the part!
Richard Curtis, who has written all of our favourite British romcoms such as Notting Hill and Love Actually, told how he was convinced Hugh was wrong for the part.
The screenplay writer said: “I was worried about it, when Hugh did come first come in, I did think he was too handsome. I thought people would not believe the fact he was in trouble with girls because he so clearly wouldn’t be.”
Well, seeing as Hugh went on to star in so many of Curtis’ movies, we reckon he doesn’t regret his decision to give him the role!
